Casino Blacklist

The world of online gambling has become a generally safe and secure one, but like any transaction that involves money changing hands on the web, it’s not without its risks. It’s something we realize, and here at Online Casinos Canada, we want to make sure you don’t end up living a horror story by accidentally wagering at a “rogue” casino.

Why Are They Here?

There are four main rules that a casino should never break, and failure to follow them is what can lead to a spot on our Blacklisted Casinos list:

  1. Not paying winnings to its players
  2. Using rigged software
  3. Unsatisfactory customer support
  4. Aggressive and misleading marketing tactics

Beyond those four rules, there are other performance standards a casino should be able to meet. For instance, some casinos take an unreasonable amount of time to pay their players. We also blacklist casinos notorious for spamming players with information they don’t need, as well as casinos who insist on operating without a license. While those four rules are an easy way to end up on our blacklist, our goal is to label casinos seem bent on spoiling a Canadian gambler’s online experience.

Our Motivation

While we obviously monitor the Canadian online gambling scene closely looking for casinos to recommend, we’re also up to date on dangerous rogue casinos that earn poor reputations. By monitoring sites first-hand and relying on reports from regulatory bodies, we can keep players posted on which casinos are bad eggs and provide warnings about scams being run in the online gambling universe.

What Else Can You Do?

Players can also do some more of their own homework at sites like Casinomeister’s Rogue Pit and Wizard of Odds blacklist section. Battling these rogue casinos is a group effort, and using all of the resources available to us is the best way to make sure that scams are limited in scope and don’t ruin things for the entire online gambling community.

In that spirit, we invite and encourage users to contact us and share your stories about any encounters you’ve had with these evil rogue casinos. We pride ourselves on being able to bring you all the latest information regarding online gambling, such as the best online casinos to play in, so your help in making sure our blacklist is comprehensive and up to date is invaluable.

For now, though, we hope you’ll consult our blacklist above and take note of which casinos have earned poor reputations and why. In order to become blacklisted, a casino must have been given multiple opportunities to explain or amend accused actions, and won’t earn blacklist status until all avenues have been explored.
